Please find attached the results for Race 1 of the Helsby Summer Fell Series, the Llantisilio Mountain Race nr Llangollen.
This race at 6.2 Miles and 2100ft is set in some brilliant scenery and fairly unforgiving on what was a hot April Saturday. With over 90 runners on the start line including five green vests, soon the smiles and banter quickly turned into grimaces of intent as the race begins with a steady ascent that can quickly turn into a climb. Just check out the video linked below.
